Possible mechanical failure caused BART train to become disabled

(KRON/BCN) — BART is recovering Monday afternoon from an earlier delay caused by a train that became disabled in San Francisco.

Around 3 p.m., a Fremont-bound train stopped on the tracks between the Glen Park and 24th Street Mission stations because of a possible mechanical failure, BART spokesman Taylor Huckaby said.

Another BART train was able to push the disabled train to the 24th Street station, where passengers were allowed to get off.

The disabled train is now being taken to a yard for repairs, according to Huckaby.

Although the train has been cleared, residual delays were expected for BART trains in all directions Monday afternoon as a result of the incident.
